Question about 2000 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
Trunk has always worked fine and now the only way to open it is to slide the valet key out of the remote keyless entry and stick the key in the key hole in the trunk... if you close the trunk and press either the trunk button on my keyless entry or the trunk button in the car... nothing happens... just a little hissing noise comes from the trunk if you listen closely... this model car has mechanism assist on all the doors and trunk AKA if you close any one of doors or trunk lightly, the mechanism pulls the door or trunk closed tight... its a convienience feature i guess... so no when you open the trunk with the key and close it, it no longer pulls the trunk in tight it just makes another hissing noise.... the car has an airmatic suspension and i assume the the doors and trunk also use an air system to assist in closing the doors tight and im sure thats why the trunk is making that hissing sound.... all the doors still work perfect.... it just the trunk is the issue... is this air leak issue, maybe the air hose for the trunk has a leak or is it the entire mechanical part of the release???
